The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones

Well, now that this past week has flown by, and with it exams and numerous due dates, I have had a wonderfully relaxing weekend. And with that free time, it has become evident to me that I have been neglecting this site a little in the past few weeks. Sorry! But here's a review of Frewin Jones's The Faerie Path to make up for it!

Anita Palmer believes that she is an ordinary girl, simply excited for her sixteenth birthday, and the plans her new boyfriend
has made. She thinks nothing of the strange dreams she's been having. But when her birthday ends in disaster and the dreams get more and more vivid, Anita begins to feel afraid.

Then she is swept into an entirely different world, the world in which her boyfriend--and Anita--really belong. Here, she is Tania, the seventh princess of Faerie.

But all isn't joyful. The kingdom is mourning the death of her mother, and her eldest sister refuses to see her. And more importantly, there is a traitor in their midst...

The Faerie Path was very charming and yet mysterious at the same time. The writing has a slight tendency to bog the reader down every once in a while, but the numerous plot twists keep the book from getting boring. Full of intriguing details and breathtaking descriptions, the story reads like your favorite fairy tale, and the surprise ending will leave you waiting in anticipation for the sequel, The Lost Queen.

I have read the first and second book of this series. I am currently reading the last book.
The story is awesome. I am a great lover of fiction stories, so the story of this series is two thumbs up! And you're one of my favorite authors.
